"The marriage has become insupportable due to discord or conflict of personalities that destroys the legitimate ends of the marital relationship and prevents any reasonable expectation of reconciliation," Mia's attorney Bruce Kaye stated in a copy of the Dallas County court filing obtained by Radar Online.
Although the phrasing may sound ominous, insupportability is the basis upon which Texas courts grant the vast majority of the state's divorce cases, according to Texas attorney Michelle May O'Neil.
While the party seeking the divorce must still prove the marriage is insupportable, insupportability is considered a "no-fault" divorce basis, which means a divorce can be granted without proof that one party was at fault for the breakup of the marriage, or identifying the source of the conflict.
Mia, formally known as Ameea Janice Bally, married Tristan on Season 7 of Married at First Sight, which is currently airing on Lifetime and will air its season finale in October.
While Married at First Sight's seventh season only premiered on Lifetime in July, Mia and Tristan tied the knot without knowing anything about each other in late March 2018. They exchanged vows on-camera after meeting each other for the first time at the altar.
The timing of the divorce filing could indicate Mia and Tristan chose to stay together and remain married on "Decision Day," which was filmed in late May at the conclusion of Married at First Sight's extreme eight-week experiment.
However, Mia and Tristan may also have opted to split at the end of Married at First Sight's filming and simply waited three months to get around to formally filing for divorce.
Mia's filing lists a Dallas, TX residence -- which suggests that although Married at First Sight's recent episodes have shown the couple discussing a possible move to Houston, TX, they either never moved or she subsequently relocated back to Dallas.

Texas law requires a person to have lived in a county for at least 90 days before filing for divorce in the county, and Dallas and Houston are not part of the same Texas counties. According to her divorce petition, Mia has resided in Dallas County for the 90 days prior to the filing.
In addition, the petition also states that neither Mia or Tristan have filed or plan to seek a protective order against the other, and also clarifies for the court that the couple do not have any children and Mia is not pregnant.
According to the filing, Mia and Tristan both agree that they are each entitled to all personal property that they had acquired before the marriage and will make an agreement on how to divide any personal property and debts, if any, acquired during the marriage.
While the petition was only filed in Dallas County court on September 4, Tristan was sent a copy of it via email on August 29, according to the filing.
Mia, a 29-year-old airline recruiter; and Tristan, a 29-year-old former collegiate and semi-pro basketball player, have been shown dealing with many ups and downs in their relationship on Married at First Sight.
The biggest hurdle the couple had to overcome was Mia initially lying to Tristan about her March 27 arrest in which she had been detained in a Texas airport while traveling to Cancun, Mexico for their honeymoon and spent two days in custody.
An arrest warrant had been issued back in February by Mia's alleged ex-boyfriend, Jared Evans, who claimed she had stalked him on multiple occasions in the 13 months that followed their December 2016 breakup and also made an unauthorized purchase of an Apple iPhone on his credit card one year after their split.
Mia initially told Tristan the situation was a matter of identity theft and she had no relationship with her accuser, but she slowly came clean to her concerned husband off-camera, resulting in a lack of trust in their marriage.
After footage of Mia's arrest aired in July, Married at First Sight's producers had released a statement insisting all necessary precautions were taken during casting and viewers would have a front-row seat as drama unfolded between the couple "in real time."
"On this season of Married at First Sight, one of this season's participants, Mia, was detained at the airport by authorities as she was about to leave on her honeymoon with her new husband, Tristan," a MAFS representative told People.
"The warrant for Mia's arrest was filed after her background check had been cleared by production."
"Viewers will have the opportunity to watch their emotionally true story as it unfolds in real time throughout the season and learn whether or not the couple ultimately decides to stay married or get a divorce."
